This is my second attempt at creating a game console. This makes use of laser cut palstic parts for the enclosure, it makes use of a raspberry pi and mame. The game play is not very good. However it feels good :). But I am still learning and after many attempts – I will finally build an awesome game console. Nividia Jetsons dev board is very powerful but expensive at the same time. May be I will get one when get a deal somewhere.
This is my first attempt at creating a game console. It is a PIC based design. I used an existing kit, studied the circuit and assembled it together. This video game console is essentially a microprocessor/ micro controller based circuit with few resistors for interfacing with the video and few switches which work as input to the game console. You can get an idea on how it is done using Cornell University Final Projects and Video game console design course. Adafruit industries and XGameStation provide game console kits. Meanwhile I will be looking at Ben Nanonote and Open Pandora Hardware design to learn how to design my own awesome little game console.
I will 3d print my own console enclosure for this tiny little project of mine and its going to look awesome!.
